Black teacher tells whites to kill themselves

A black teacher in a suburb of Dallas, Texas, is out of a job after suggesting whites should “kill themselves” in a profanity-laced tweet directed at “dumb crackers” critical of her support of the racially charged protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

Vinita Hegwood, who teaches English at Duncanville High School, has been placed on administrative leave without pay and will be fired at the next meeting of the school board, according to district officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find this teacher's statements highly offensive.

BUT...

She made these comments on her own time, off campus, using her personal computer and access. She apparently did not make these statements in her official capacity as a teacher.

If it is wrong for schools to spy on students when they are off campus, then the same must apply to the teachers. Your commitment to freedom of speech is measured not by how much you support the people you agree with, but by how much you support the people you disagree with.
